  • Must-see for anyone visiting the region. Historic and recently renovated, it is a place to see once during his visit in the region. The least: the price of the tour. A bit pricey...

  • Visit the lion of Waterloo and especially the new memorial is a return in time impressive about life in the time of Napoleon, on the living conditions of the time. Very interesting and well done.
